Two forms of medical assistance are available.
The Medical Service Plan is the result of an agreement between UTPB and the West Texas Wellness Clinic in Odessa. Students pay a $15.00 co-pay for an office visit. Emergency room treatment and ambulance fees are not covered by the Medical Service Plan. Get a Medical Services brochure for more details. This program is funded through the Medical Service Fee paid at registration. The medical service plan does not cover online only students or dual credit.
A totally separate program is the optional Student Health Insurance Plan from the University of Texas System. Students will need to pay an additional premium for this health insurance plan, but the insurance plan covers more medical treatments and family members can be added. For specific information on coverage provided, see the booklet available in the P.A.S.S. Office, the Student Union, or the display racks located on each floor in the Mesa building.
